This is an enormous castle, which you will see when you visit the insides. You can easily get lost touring the place. The castle was very much in ruins, but when the state took over, they have been restoring. It's impressive to see what they've...More

Before being bought by the local government and (impressively) renovated/restored starting in the 60s onwards, this castle was abandoned, ruined, and its stones had been pilfered to build nearby houses. So don’t expect to find in it lovely remains of a time long past. All...More
